Danielle Fishel talks about origins of 'Boy Meets World' sequel




Children of the '90s by now have heard that Disney has signed former Boy Meets World actors Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel to star in a revamp of the show called Boy Meets Girl. In case you were wondering how and why they'd ever do anything like star in a show picking up more than decade later with the pair raising a 13-year-old daughter, the 31-year-old Fishel wrote all about it on her Tumblr.

"I am going to do my best to not speak for others with this open post. But because I have known Michael Jacobs, Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, and Bill Daniels for 19 years, I know we share many of the same feelings regarding the 7 wonderful years we spent making BMW ... I promise with the entirety of my heart that we will make GMW with the same honesty, innocence, and intelligence that you learned to expect from BMW," she wrote.

"I say this because making the decision to do the show involved more conversations than you can possible (sic) imagine. ... GMW is a new show. It isn’t BMW brought back to life but in current day.  It will have familiar faces, familiar themes, and familiar messages. It will also have new faces, new themes, and new messages. ... For those of you who knew and loved BMW, please allow this show to evolve as well. Stick with us. Give us a chance."

In other words, Topanga says please watch the pilot. We promise it won't be like when they jumped Funky Winkerbean past the college years and made everyone middle-aged and depressed.
